Forward-Looking Statements

This presentation contains forward-looking statements and information. These forward-looking statements, which in many instances can be identified by
words like “could,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “plans,” “project,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “planned,” “proposed,” “potential,” and other comparable
words, regarding future or contemplated results, performance, transactions, or events, are based on MarkWest Energy Partners, L.P. (“MarkWest” and
“Partnership”) current information, expectations and beliefs, concerning future developments and their potential effects on MarkWest. Although we
believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to
be correct, and actual results, performance , distributions , events or transactions could vary significantly from those expressed or implied in such
statements and are subject to a number of uncertainties and risks.

Among the factors that could cause results, performance, distributions, events or transactions to differ materially from those expressed or implied, are
those risks discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008, and our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the
quarter ended September 30, 2009, as filed with the SEC. You are urged to carefully review and consider the cautionary statements and other
disclosures, including those under the heading “Risk Factors,” made in those documents. If any of the uncertainties or risks develop into actual events
or occurrences
occurrences, or if underlying assumptions prove incorrect
incorrect, it could cause actual results to vary significantly from those expressed in the presentation,
presentation
and our business, financial condition, or results of operations could be materially adversely affected. Key uncertainties and risks that may directly affect
MarkWest’s performance, future growth, results of operations, and financial condition, include, but are not limited to:

■ Fluctuations and volatility of natural gas, NGL products, and oil prices;
■ A reduction in natural gas or refinery off-gas production which we gather, transport, process, and/or fractionate;
■ A reduction in the demand for the products we produce and sell;
■ Financial credit risks / failure of customers to satisfy payment or other obligations under our contracts;
■ Effects of our debt and other financial obligations, access to capital, or our future financial or operational flexibility or liquidity;
■ Construction, procurement, and regulatory risks in our development projects;
■ Hurricanes,, fires,, and other natural and accidental events impacting
p g our operations,
p , and adequate
q insurance coverage;
g ;
■ Terrorist attacks directed at our facilities or related facilities;
■ Changes in and impacts of laws and regulations affecting our operations; and
■ Failure to integrate recent or future acquisitions.

Non-GAAP Measures

Distributable Cash Flow and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered
separately from or as a substitute for net income, income from operations, or cash flow as reflected in our financial statements. The GAAP measure
most directly comparable to Distributable Cash Flow and Adjusted EBITDA is net income (loss) attributable to the Partnership.

In general, we define Distributable Cash Flow as net income (loss) attributable to the Partnership adjusted for (i) depreciation, amortization, accretion
and impairment expense; (ii) amortization of deferred financing costs, (iii) non-cash
non cash (earnings) loss from unconsolidated affiliates; (iv) distributions from
(contributions to) unconsolidated affiliates (net of affiliate’s growth capital expenditures); (v) non-cash compensation expense; (vi) non-cash derivative
activity; (vii) losses (gains) on the disposal of property, plant and equipment (“PP&E”); (viii) provision for deferred income taxes; (ix) adjustments for
non-controlling interest in consolidated subsidiaries; (x) losses (gains) relating to other miscellaneous non-cash amounts affecting net income for the
period; and (xi) maintenance capital expenditures. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) attributable to the Partnership adjusted for (i)
depreciation, amortization, accretion, and impairment expense; (ii) interest expense; (iii) amortization of deferred financing costs; (iv) losses (gains) on
the disposal of PP&E; (v) non-cash derivative activity; (vi) non-cash compensation expense; (vii) provision for income taxes; (viii) adjustments for cash
fl
flow from
f unconsolidated
lid d investments;
i (ix)
(i ) adjustment
dj ffor non-controlling
lli iinterest off consolidated
lid d subsidiaries;
b idi i and
d ((x)) llosses (gains)
( i ) relating
l i to otherh
miscellaneous non-cash amounts affecting net income for the period.

Distributable Cash Flow is a financial performance measure used by management as a key component in the determination of cash distributions paid
to unitholders. We believe distributable cash flow is an important financial measure for unitholders as an indicator of cash return on investment and to
evaluate whether the Partnership is generating sufficient cash flow to support quarterly distributions. In addition, distributable cash flow is commonly
used by the investment community because the market value of publicly traded partnerships is basedbased, in part
part, on distributable cash flow and cash
distributions paid to unitholders.

Adjusted EBITDA is a financial performance measure used by management, industry analysts, investors, lenders, and rating agencies to assess the
financial performance and operating results of the Partnership’s ongoing business operations. Additionally, we believe Adjusted EBITDA provides
useful information to investors for trending, analyzing, and benchmarking our operating results from period to period as compared to other companies
that may have different financing and capital structures.

Please see the Appendix and Slide 26 for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) attributable to the Partnership.

Unconventional Resource Plays Demand a Different Midstream Model

MarkWest operations are designed to support the unconventional resource plays

■ “Insourcing” is the new “Outsourcing”


□ Producers and gatherers must rethink their historical relationship – MarkWest has
led the way in this revolution

■ Preparing for the wave


□ Gatherers must prepare for the dramatic changes in gas volumes

■ Varying
y g gas
g composition
p
□ More flexible gathering design

■ Capital investment changes the equation


□ Significant first mover advantage and fewer overlapping gathering systems
□ New investment opportunities over the full life of the play

Appalachia Overview
Long before
L b f the
th Marcellus
M ll was identified
id tifi d as an important
i t t new emerging
i Shale
Sh l play,
l we
understood the advantage that we would have in the hydrocarbon rich areas of Southwest PA
□ MarkWest is the largest gas processor in the prolific Appalachian Basin, a critical source of natural gas and natural gas liquids to
Northeastern markets, with more than 20 years of operational experience
□ NGLs from four processing gas plants are shipped to Siloam for fractionation, storage, and marketing
• Siloam produces purity propane, iso-butane, normal butane, and natural gasoline
• Strategic and longstanding marketing relationships with sales by truck, rail, and barge
• Propane storage capacity of more than 10 million gallons

■ Vertical integration in the Appalachian


basin is critical to success and has
allowed us create a franchise position
□ Gas processing capacity of approximately
330 MMcf/d
□ Siloam Fractionation capacity of 24,000 Bbl/d
□ Storage capacity of approximately 260,000
barrels

partner that shares a common view towards the inherent value of the
Marcellus
□ Allows MarkWest to meet the significant gathering and processing needs of
its producer customers while significantly reducing MWE’s up-front capital
■ Competitive advantages
□ Significant first mover advantage in the prolific Marcellus Shale with key
producer acreage dedications of up to 300,000 rich-gas acres
□ Critical gathering, processing, transportation, fractionation, and storage
infrastructure that currently did not exist in the Northeast
Majorsville
□ System and plants are new; highly fuel efficient with minimal losses
□ Low-pressure service
□ Experienced mid-stream
mid stream operator with extensive northeast marketing
experience
